This decidedly modern home is the result of a gut renovation within a newly constructed building in the Tribeca neighborhood of lower Manhattan. This small family loved the location, the views of the river, and the building’s historical quality which offered a classic stately exterior and newly installed moldings and details and state of the art new construction. After living in the unit for several years, the couple decided they wanted a more modern and open plan space for loft style living. The design brought the three-bedroom condo down to two bedrooms, and opened up the living space. A grey Tadelakt plaster finish was applied as an accent around the kitchen and was inspired by her Moroccan heritage and upbringing. Growing up in Morocco and now living as an expat in the States, her eclectic taste was a strong inspiration for the design. The mix of both antique and modern European and American idioms applied throughout the design are reflective of the couple’s diverse backgrounds and their worldly view. A pair of Marco Zannuso Chairs from Venfield acts as a focal point in the living room, as well as a contrast to the traditional Tadelakt in the kitchen. A custom banquette and dining area opposite the kitchen anchors the middle of the loft and is the center of the life of this little family.
